The study of the anthracological finds discovered during the excavation campaign at Vetricella

Charcoals analysis with reflective microscope

In collaboration with Vegetation Hystory and Wood Anatomy Lab (Dipartimento di Scienze Agrarie, Università di Napoli Federico II), the  archaeobotanists return to work and resume their activities focusing on charcoals discovered during the archaeological excavation at Vetricella (Scarlino,GR).

Microscopic analysis will allow us to recognize the plant species used as fuel and thus to describe the forest cover and trace back to the wood supply area.
